Event description

Description

The Wild Wellness Retreat is for Womxn who love camping, the outdoors, community, delicious food, yoga- and also love being nurtured, taking hot baths, laying under the stars, making new friendships.
This weekend is a fusion of nurturing practitioners and the purity of nature combined.

Participants can arrive on Friday and expect a long table dinner hosted by Holistic Nutritionist Sam Johnson. Concluding dinner will be a campfire on the beach and time for connection.
Saturday morning will begin with optional morning meditation and sunrise yoga. A delicious whole foods breakfast will be served, and then time to explore or relax. Throughout the day there will be workshops on mindfulness, manifestation and seasonal eating (all workshops are optional). Dinner on Saturday evening will be in honour of the first day of Autumn, and the menu will reflect this first fall harvest. Proceeding dinner there will be a blind wine tasting (optional) of all local wines.

Sunday morning will begin with yin yoga and acupuncture before gathering together for our final brunch.

This retreat is one where you will camp out in your tent (bring some friends) AND you will also have access to a hot bath/shower, big warm kitchen, cozy sitting room with fireplace. If the weather doesn't cooperate, the workshops and classes will be held inside the cabin. Dinners and Wine Tastings will be outside at our long table, unless the weather doesn't permit then we will enjoy our meals indoors also.

If you do not have a tent of your own, please reach out to Nicole or Sam and they will be able to provide a tent for you.

The Cost is 499.00 including tax before August 20th. $550.00 including tax August 21st-Sept9th. If you and two other people book together you will each receive 50.00 off of your weekend package price.

Kate Landreth is a Mindfulness Educator; her philosophy is that the act of showing up for yourself is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and others. Mindfulness and yoga has inspired her to show up fully and authentically both on and off her mat (or pillow). Over the past ten years, she has drawn upon various mindfulness practices and techniques to support herself with life's ups and downs. While Kate's practice is continually evolving and changing, one element that remains consistent is its ability to anchor her to the present moment. Yoga and mindfulness have become interconnected in all parts of Kate's life; grounding and connecting her to what is truly important.
"Applying my training and practice of yoga and mindfulness, alongside my deep experience in curriculum and learning design, I whole-heartedly plan and produce mindfulness workshops, online mindfulness classes and blog posts that are accessible for everyone. Through working with me and engaging with my content, you will learn and experience the benefits of mediation and mindfulness through meaningful, manageable practices and tools that you can implement into your daily life."

Brit Kwasney is a musician, entrepreneur, student of shamanism and yogi among her many talents, but for the purposes of our weekend she is our very own photographer! She’s owned and operated Bright Photography out of Vancouver and Victoria for the past 7 years, capturing everything from family photos to weddings to adventure travel and bringing her small-town Kootenay warmth to all she does. You could say Brit has mastered the art of ‘watching for the moments’, honed by years of playing hockey goalie, and evidenced by her poignant candid shots and fine art West Coast photography. Brit has a gift for making anyone feel at home in front of the camera— just ask her camera-shy partner Alix (your acupuncturist for the retreat)!
